Liturgy & Sacraments

The celebration of the liturgy is central to the life of our community. It is “the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fount from which all the Church’s power flows” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 1963). We are strengthened for service to our community and our world by prayer and especially by the celebration of the Eucharist. Our ministry in the name of Jesus draws us ever more fully to prayer and praise.

Liturgy Schedule

Parishioners and friends of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist celebrate a wide variety of liturgies and devotions. The Eucharist (Mass, both daily and weekly); Liturgy of the Hours (in Morning and seasonal Evening Prayer); Reconciliation (Confession); Anointing of the Sick; the Stations of the Cross are just a few examples.

To see the complete schedule, please follow this link: Mass Schedule

Sacraments

"The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony." Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1113.

For more information about the seven Sacraments you may begin with an overview, or go directly to the information for any specific sacrament found in the menu on the right.

Liturgical Ministries

The Second Vatican Council called the whole Church to reflect on the role of the laity in the Church. It reminded us that all Christians, by virtue of their baptism, are called to spread the gospel, to continue the work of building the Kingdom of God, and, most especially, to offer worship.

The Cathedral provides all parishioners with the opportunity to regularly celebrate vibrant, faith-enriching liturgy, Liturgical training, spiritual formation, and theological education. All parishioners are invited and encouraged to share their talents and interests with the Cathedral community by becoming involved in a liturgical ministry.

For more information about liturgical ministry at the Cathedral, you may begin with an overview of or go directly to the information for any specific ministry found in the menu on the right under Liturgical Ministries.
